Nuns. Definitely.

So, how old do the kids have to be before they can be sent to a convent?  Like what, seven, eight?

Yesterday TLo (who is FIVE) said to me, “Oh. Em. Gee.  I can’t believe something something something blah blah blah….”  Seriously?  O.M.G.?  I mean, I might type “OMG” once in while, but I guarantee you I have never in my life spoken such a thing. 

Clearly they are under the influence of bad, bad forces at school.  Next thing you know they’ll want to listen to Miley Cyrus and eat brand-name breakfast cereal.  And from there it’s just a slippery slope to whining “But TiffanyBrieShaquandra gets to buy her clothes….”  Ugh.  Convent school.  I see now that it’s the only way.


  1. LOL!!! To the Oh. Em. Gee. and to Shaquandra. I hope it's not too late for the convent!

  2. I'm sooo glad I don't have a girl.

  3. Entire conversations, albeit short ones, have been known to take place between my teens consisting of capitals and only the occasional word. Just wait 'til one (teen that is) tells you not to have a psych, or that there's no need to fritz. If only they could learn and converse in French as fluently.

  4. What if the convent is full of other girls just like yours, who all use the same lingo and whose parents put them there for the same reason? She'd become Sister Brittney Spears!

  5. What comes out of the mouths of babes! They are constantly a source of surprise aren't they?

  6. i'll never forget the time my youngest used the d__m word! She was very little, maybe 5! I about died. I asked her where she heard it and she said from tv. What had she been watching and where? I never did figure that one out!! I also remember my oldest in third grade coming home crying because of the absolutely most nasty thing this boy in her class had asked her to do!!! Use your imagination! What do you do short of sending them to a convent. I threatened locking them up in a closet or their bedroom. What's worse is I was a teacher at their school and had to deal with this kid and his buddies and many more like him!!!
    Of course, all the other parents let their kids do all the cool stuff..... that is until you talk to them and find out that you are the cool parent who lets her kids do it all. These kids are smart and they will play parents against parents!!! Amazing how fast they learn!
    Thanks for your comments about my mom and her hotdog.
    Also thanks for the idea about the spray adhesive. I had thought about that. I wonder if there's something that could be applied before I cut? I wonder if there's an adhesive that could be sprayed, then parchment paper or something stuck on and then removed when I'm through cutting. I guess I need to go to the sites that show this art form and see if there are ideas there.


You know you want to say something....
